Remove batteries.
Insert a paperclip or similar object into the "reset" hole and hold in for 10+ seconds.
Insert new batteries.
This should reset the thermostat to factory settings and clear all programs, and it should work normally afterwards.

If the error occurs again within a month, then call Hunter tech support at 888-830-1326 between 7am - 7pm US Central timezone.

I reset my hunter thermostate and now its showing Celcius instade of Ferienheit temperatures, how can I change it back?

Press and hold for about 1 second to enter Manual Override mode. When display flashes, you can release the key. ■ Press again to change to your desired Set Temperature. Hold the key for 2 seconds to fast-advance the Set Temperature. ■ Press to return to normal mode, or wait 5 seconds for it to return automatically. ■ The current program number will flash to signify the Temporary Override. ■ At the next program change time, the Temporary Override is cancelled, and the next program temperature becomes the setpoint temperature. To end the Temporary Manual Override: ■ Press and wait for HOLD to display on the LCD. ■ Press again. This will return the set temperature to the current program set temperature.

My thermostat displays E What does that mean?

Hi, that is the indication for "Error" and you should first replace the (2) AA batteries in the thermostat, (even if you just replaced them recently) and then using a small paperclip, reset the thermostat, by inserting the unbent end of the paperclip into the reset hole next to the keypad.

Be advised that this will reset the thermostat to the default temperature and time cycle settings, so you'll have to reprogram the unit, once you've reset it. With your unit, you only need to set a weekday setting and one for each of the weekend days.

Here's a copy of the instructions for your use in resetting and reprogramming the thermostat, once you've replaced the batteries.

You can also contact Hunter tech support, should the above info not get your thermostat back in working order by calling them at 1-888-830-1326, from 8 AM to 5 PM Central Time.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I am trying to hook up a Hunter 44260 t-stat. The old one(not sure of model) has the following hookup. White-O Terminal Green-G Terminal Red-RC Terminal Yellow-Y Terminal then jumped to W Terminal...

Here is some basic info to help you. On the thermostat the letters mean... G is for your blower fan, and is usually green, Rc and Rh are power for the heating and cooling circuit (24v) and are usually red; Y (or in this case Y/O) is power to the cooling contactor (outside the house) and is usually yellow, and W (or in this case W/B) is the common wire, and is usually white. It kind of sounds like the people who installed the old thermostat followed these guidelines, so your best chance is to go to the heating unit and seeing where the wires connect to. Hope this helps

Hunter Thermostat fan won't turn off

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am inclined to suspect 3 possibilities:
  • sticking relay contacts (if used) (a possibility, least likely);
  • dusty thermal sensor/switch for the fan (likely);
  • time delay. design feature, will power down the fan only after a certain period that the heater has turned off. This is to dissipate residual heat not only on the heater but on the immediate surroundings of the heater element (most likely).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
